Institutional Award: WBAW Radio, “Church of Your Choice,” for Public Service by a Local Station

WBAW Radio

WBAW’s Church of Your Choice, presented in cooperation with religious leaders in its listening area, was a new and attractive concept in religious broadcasting during 1953. Local ministers, as newscasters and commentators, relate their particular church, its members, and its activities to the larger life of the whole community. This unique series extended and strengthened the local usefulness of WBAW, but it was but one of several public services to which this station attributes the acceptance, goodwill, and support which it enjoys in the Barnwell, South Carolina area—and for which the George Foster Peabody Award for public service by a local station is hereby presented.
